Year 3 - tour eiffel


We are the Tour Eiffel class!

Whether you're lucky enough to have visited Paris or have only ever dreamed of going there, chances are you know of the French capital's most beloved landmark, The Eiffel Tower.

The Eiffel Tower, La Tour Eiffel in French, was the main exhibit of the Paris Exposition of 1889. It was constructed to commemorate the centennial of the French Revolution and to demonstrate France's industrial prowess to the world. 

Although, at the beginning it was meant to be a temporary structure, it proved to be extremely popular and soon became a symbol for Paris. 


This half term, Year 3 will be studying the topic Active Planet. This unit will give the children a chance to learn about earthquakes and volcanoes. They will find out about how the Earth is formed, about Pompeii, about hot and cold colours, what makes buildings strong, how to use different sequences of movement to show the story of volcanoes, about legends associated with volcanoes, what happens when a volcano erupts, about international organisations that work after natural disasters.
